The Full Review

Golden-hued in the glass, this aromatic, off-dry white is a great example of how the right amount of sugar can amplify flavor. Ripe peach, tangerine, and pink lady apple carry from nose to palate, the hint of sweetness popping the flavors forward on the tongue. Undertones of rocky minerality and lightly toasted nuts add dimension, with moderate, balancing acidity.
